Marine Protected Areas

A short film " What should a Marine Protected Area look like?"  by Thomas Daguerre and Andrew Ball.

What is a Marine Protected Area?

Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are places at sea where certain damaging activities are restricted. They are a tried and tested means of protecting habitats and wildlife at sea and there are many around the world.

In the UK, there are many different types of Marine Protected Areas. Together these form our MPA Network which, once complete, will protect a wide range of marine wildlife and the special places they call home.
